It's time for the first 2020 challenge at AAA Cards.
As Craftyscrappers is our sponsor for this challenge I used stamps from one of their digi sets. I didn't go with the optional twist but opted for a more general card that could be used for many occasions.
I added the horizontal strip in photoshop and then added the merboy, fish and greeting from the digi set. Once printed I added colour using Copic pens. For the tail I used the dotted technique that I learnt about on a Copic course. Thought it looked a bit like fish scales.
I used the Beach Waves stencil from A Colorful Life on top of the horizontal strip. I think it gives movement to the card.
